You Don’t Have to go to Hell


One reason many people never get saved is they think they have committed sins too awful for God to forgive. Such thinking underestimates the grace of God.

And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, havingforgiven you all trespasses; (Col. 2:13)

Notice that the verse does not say some trespasses or most trespasses or even all trespasses except the really bad ones. Theverse says all trespasses, and God means what he says. There is no sin you have committed that is larger than God’s grace.

This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. (1Timothy 1:15)

Paul was the chief of sinners, yet Christ saved him. If Paul can be saved, anyone can be saved — including you. The reason that no sin will prevent you from being saved is that salvation is not based upon what you do or what you have done.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Salvation is based upon what Christ accomplished on the cross.

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: (1Corinthians 15:3,4)

Christ paid the penalty on the cross that you could not pay, and his blood covered all of your sins: past, present, and future.

If you go to Hell, it will not because you have committed a sin so terrible that God cannot forgive it. Rather, it will be because you have chosen to reject the free offer of salvation through faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.

Don’t let the sins in your past ruin your future. Trust Christ’s shed blood as the sufficient payment for your sins today.
